This closing thought can be read by Cubmaster or other pack leader.
What can we learn from the past?
What lesson that will last?.
Faith in God, honor of country,
To these truths, we hold fast.
Our forefathers made us free;
Stood for truth and liberty;
Made inventions and Improvements
And legacies for all to see.
As Cub Scouts we honor them,
Those brave men we remember,
From Washington to Reagan,
They've fanned the glowing ember.
This glowing ember of America
Shall burn for centuries;
The f lame of greatness lingers on
For future men to seize.
We now salute our growing Cubs,
Whose youth shall soon be gone;
From Cubs to real men, some shall grow
To lead our country on.
